Default Dell Inspiron won't connect to internet after SP1

Hi guys,

Hoping someone out there has come across this problem before. Took a Dell Laptop in the other day and the internet connections on the wireless card and ethernet ports were working fine.

Updated to Service pack 1 and now neither will connect to the internet. A lot of the time the 2 screens with a ball icon comes up showing it connected but there is no access to the internet.

Device manager shows the wireless card and the ethernet card along with 8 entries for 6to4 adapter with yellow exclamation marks.

Ipconfig/all shows lots of tunnel adapter local area connection media disconnected settings but no settings for the network.

I can ping the router no problem but nothing outside of it.

I have updated the drivers on the ethernet card and the wireless card and tried disabling ipv6 in the tcp/ip settings and turned off the firewall on the laptop and still I can't get a connection.

Any ideas would be most welcome.

Cheers,

John.

Disable Ethernet card, Try WPA personal instead of AES or WPA2 on the wireless. Right click on the connected network and select properties.

Hope this helps.

Hi PC Man,

Thanks for getting back to me. Will give that a go.

Just tried again with the cable connected to the ethernet port and I can ping www.google.com and it replys as normal. Network connection in system tray shows local only connection without the blue wheel symbol. The browser opens but claims it can't find a connection. Any more ideas anyone?

Cheers,

John

What Security software is installed?
Have you checke the Host file?
Reset TCP\IP?
Rebuilt Winsock?
